    Bikepacking Pics

    I apologize in advance if this thread already exists but I couldn't find it. I thought it would be nice to see a couple pictures of peoples trips with some included info on the area/trip. Having introduced the idea to the forum; last fall I had a window of five days to spend in The Bighorns of Wyoming and did a circumnavigation of The Cloud Peak Wilderness Area. Starting/finishing in Buffalo, Wy., the trip was self supported (not much out there but water) and the 240ish miles was accomplished in 4 1/2 days. A mix of trails, roads, and cross country made for a great trip with really nice scenery.Bikepacking Pics-p1010239.jpgBikepacking Pics-p1010244.jpgBikepacking Pics-p1010234.jpgBikepacking Pics-p1010285.jpg

    That is probably more remote wilderness than 99.9 % of this forum will ever see. Awesome!
    Were you concerned about the lions, tigers and bears?

    A few weeks ago: 3 days in Lockhart Basin, riding and exploring on foot. Water is scarce.
    Surly Krampus w Revelate stuff, more than 30 days bikepacking on this rig/gear over the years.

    Fall Bikepacking

    I've been meaning to post trip reports for a while now. Perhaps a few pics will suffice.
    I live in LA and have been doing some local trips. The first was a 3 day trip around Mount Wilson and the second was a 2 day trip outside of Ojai.
    Mount Wilson:

    Kep1974, Nice pics and area. I had no idea the Ojia area was that mountainous…looks like some nice riding. What is the water situation like? Can a longer trip be linked together? Riding destination during the winter months (for us northerners looking for a winter ride)? Thank you

    It was my first time there and I wasn't prepared for how rugged it was. I got a late start and had to camp at 5,800 ft. because I ran out of light. Luckily, I found a pond as a (gross) water source. If you can camp at lower elevations water seems to be consistent.
    I feel like I've just scratched the surface of this area. I planned my route based off of the Tour de Los Padres route which is available as a GPX route online. The guy who plans TDLP, Erin, encouraged me to check it out. I'll definitely be going back in the next couple of months.

    Ya, the link at the bottom spoiled the game. Cool pics, though, for sure.

    Negative - the deserts in Israel are considerably more monochromatic; they're almost all limestone...but you're not too far.

    Ever seen Lawrence of Arabia? It's Wadi Rum (and the surrounding areas) in southern Jordan. We rode from Aqaba to Wadi Rum, to near Petra, via some pretty isolated back-country, taking in some pretty terrific scenery and primo fatbike terrain.

    From a five-day trip, I can say southern Jordan is a great place for bikepacking. I'd love to go back and spend more time just exploring Wadi Rum by fatbike. Highly recommended!

    From last weekend's 3 day loop around portions of Canyonlands NP. 180 miles, only 5 on pavement. Two river crossings, deep sand and even stretches of snow.

    It looks like a lot of you bike packers are loners. Any concerns with that or precaution you take in such remote places?
